DOUGHERTY CO., GA (WALB) - The Dougherty County School Board has approved Kenneth Dyer as the new superintendent.
This comes nearly a month after the board voted for him as the candidate and two months after the current superintendent, David Mosley, announced his retirement.
Dyer said working with Dr. Mosely for the past three years has been invaluable in preparing him for this role.
He plans to continue Mosley's efforts to prepare students for college.
Specifically, he plans to work on rolling out the charter system.
"I don't think there's any better way for our students to be prepared than to give our schools the individual attention that they need, the flexibility that they need to meet the needs of our students," said Dyer.
Dyer will be working with Dr. Mosely during the transition.
He will begin his position on July 1st.
The contract is for three years.
